Sony launches two new sports wireless headphones for the active, stylish music lover who’s always on the go. These high quality headphones are just as good when worn in a high intensity cardio class, a yoga session or in everyday life.
A truly wireless design is important when wearing headphones on the go, as it means you are free to do whatever sports you wish without your headphone cables getting in the way. Firstly is the truly wireless WF-SP700N headphones which combine, for the first time, two features you need most when working out; digital noise cancelling to block out the chaos and focus on your training, and a durable, splash-proof design.
Sony’s Noise Cancelling headphones become smarter with the Google Assistant Sony’s Noise Cancelling headphones will be optimised for Google Assistant via an update. Ask questions, tell it to do things, it’s your own personal Google, always ready to help. The Assistant can help you get things done, listen to music, hear your incoming messages, make calls and more.
Sony Noise Cancelling lets you concentrate and zone in to your training, in the noisy environment of a gym with machines and people talking, so you can enjoy your music clearly on the treadmill. If you’re exercising outside, just turn on the Ambient Sound mode to stay aware of the surrounding sounds.
These headphones also offer the famous Sony EXTRA BASS sound that combined with Noise Cancelling will give your music a deeper, punchier bass to focus on enhancing your performance. The companion Sony | Headphones Connect app even allows you to tailor your sound settings.
With an IPX4 rating, the WF-SP700N headphones are splash-proof meaning you can wear them in the rain, or while sweating in the gym. Supplied with arc supporters, they fit very securely in your ears no matter what activity you are doing. They are available in four colours including black, white, pink and yellow.
The WF-SP700N’s come with a compact charging case and benefit from approximately three hours of battery life, plus two additional charges from their case, offering a total of nine hours in between charges. The WF-SP700N’s have NFC one-touch connection and are compatible with the Sony | Headphones Connect app, which now features “Quick Sound Settings” so you can recall your favourite equaliser and ambient sound setting with just two taps of the headphones button. Alongside the truly wireless style, Sony brings out a standard wireless in-ear model, the WI-SP600N, which has the same Digital Noise Cancelling and sound technology as the WF-SP700N, plus the same splash-proof rating.
The compact earpieces are connected by a discreet cable that sits behind the neck and they also feature arc supporters which are designed to ensure both flexibility and a secure fit. With this pair, you can keep listening for up to approximately 6 hours. The WF-SP700N and WI-SP600N will be available from May 2018 with their pricing details still to be determined.
